Crystal Palace fans are already thinking about potential replacements for Aaron Wan-Bissaka after an agreement between the Eagles and Manchester United was reached on Wednesday, and they have made it clear that they want the club to sign Norwich City’s Max Aarons.
Wan-Bissaka will move to Old Trafford for an initial £45m fee according to the BBC, which should give Roy Hodgson plenty of cash to work with if he wants to bring in a right-back successor to the 21-year-old star.
Sky Sports reported earlier this month that the south London outfit would be interested in Aarons should they end up selling their academy graduate, and that situation has now arisen.

Prising the talented 19-year-old away from Carrow Road will surely be a difficult task following the Canaries’ promotion to the Premier League however, with the teenager playing a key role in them going up with two goals and six assists from full-back in 41 Championship appearances last term.
That hasn’t stopped Palace supporters naming him as their preferred right-back signing though, with one saying he should be the club’s “number one target”, and another saying “he’d be incredible”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
That’s not much to ask right? #cpfc

Would make Max Aarons our number one target to replace AWB but would also take Jayden Bogle to be fair #cpfc

If we sign Max Aarons then my previous opinion is irrelevant, he’d be incredible

Expectation: Sell AWB for 65m. Buy Michy and Aarons
Reality: Sell AWB for 45+5. Buy Ayew and Castagne
